SNS/Lact-Aid Mamas... Counting Ounces

Hey Mamas! I'm BFing my 9 week old adoptive son since he was 2 days old. Didn't start using the Lact-Aid unit until he was two weeks old, just didn't have it yet. So far, everything is going well and I'm excited that it is working for him. He gets all his formula that way, except for his bedtime bottle with daddy. I'm making some milk but doubt I'll ever have a full milk supply for him.

How do you know how much of a milk supply you're producing? Isn't there a bit of math, like "Babies weighing this many lb. need this many oz. per day" and healthy weight-gaining babies drinking less formula than that are getting the rest from your own milk supply?!
